  • Schmitty Ks 16! Ties franchise record!

    Yeah! He even struck out the side in the ninth with runners on second and third. What a performance. According to the FSNBA broadcast, the only other time in Giants history that a Giants pitcher struck out 16 was in 1904, when Christy Mathewson did it.

    Oh, and the Giants won 2-1.

      Truly outstanding performance. Nothing further need be said.

        Looks like Schmidt is showing that, despite his decline still is a great pitcher, I started to doubt him.

                Just curious, but what was Marichal's best single game strikeout game?

                  I'm aware that Marichal struck out 13 Dodgers in a 1962, 12-3 win. Does anyone know of one higher?

                  Schmidt has won six straight, half of them complete games. The team finally scored some runs for Lowry the other night (14 enough, Noah?), Schmidt doesn't need many runs, Cain is finally living up to his pre-season rave notices (That's what spring training is for, Matt. They start counting in April and May). Now, if we can just get Morris on board, with Hennessey and Benitez out of the bullpen, we could have the best pitching staff in the NL.

                  Is there ANYBODY you'd rather see at bat with men on base in a clutch situation than Randy Winn? And now, with Moises back and healthy and already delivering a clutch hit in his first game, the Giants appear ready to make their move.

                  Isn't it amazing how the NL West has turned it around in one year? In 2005, with only one winning team, the Padres (82-80), now, until the recent decline in Colorado's fortunes, every team was a winner. In 2006, the AL West appears to be baseball's worst division.

                    I'm not too sure, but I believe I heard that he did strike out 15 one time.

                    EDIT: I read an article on the Giants' official website, and the previous San Francisco Giants strikeout record was held by Gaylord Perry, who had 15 in a game some years ago. The Juan Marichal reference alluded to the fact that Schmidt tied Marichal for most double-digit strikeout games in a Giants uni with 25. I thought that it was Marichal that had K'd 15. Oops.

                        Wow, a Ron Herbel and a Bobby Bolin mention! Prolly the best games those two ever pitched!

                        I think I remember the Chief's game. The 'stros were flailing against the killer change up.
